Overview

About the property

Casa Da Praia Algarve

Our welcoming 3-bedroom self catering apartment with free wifi is defined by a sleek and clean layout, with a Zen-like harmony and delightful splashes of whimsical colour.

The elegant interior spaces include a fully-equipped kitchen with pantry, a relaxing sitting room and a large dining area.

It's perfectly located in the centre of Vila do Bispo, where you'll find a small supermarket for groceries, a bank wit ATM, and plenty of places to eat out. The closest beaches are Cordoama, Castelejo and Barriga at a few minutes drive from the house.

The apartment was completely refurbished in 2015 with a new kitchen, bathrooms, flooring, new furniture etc... It contains three bedrooms, a large kitchen, dining area, bathroom with rain shower, separate toilet and sitting room with cable tv.

Two beds each in the second and third bedrooms make for plenty of accommodation, and curling up with the TV is a great way to get in the holiday mood. Start the day with coffee and honey cake, enjoy a day at the beach or exploring the sights, then finish the evening relaxing in the seating area.

The Casa da Praia portfolio have been personally developed by an interior and landscape designer who has lived in the Algarve for more than a decade.

The appartement is scattered with unique and eclectic pieces, gathered from the owners travels to South Africa, London, Cape Cod, Majorca, Ibiza, Morocco, New York, Holland etc....

Share a meal cooked in the peace of house, or venture out to one of the many local restaurants and bars.

For quieter evenings and undisturbed relaxation, you'll find a selection of board games, and books in several languages.

Looking for vegetarian dining options, a vineyard, or where to find almond and fig orchards? Hoping to catch a glimpse of a wild boar or a dolfin? Yearning for a hand-woven blanket or a handbag made from cork?

The property has a folder contains a sampling of our personal favourites - places to go, things to see, what to buy and what to eat.

The owner lives locally and is available to help with any questions.

The Neighborhood

Vila do Bispo is a small town with older, typical Algarvian houses clustered around the 16th century church. It's set in Costa Vicentina National Park, and close to the Park de Floresta tennis and golf course.

When to come

The Algarve is an all year round holiday destination.

If you're not tied to the school holidays, the spring and autumn months are a lovely time to be here, and of course, much quieter than high summer.

Even December and January can be warm and sunny although the evenings are often chilly. Not all the restaurants and bars stay open in winter, but there is still plenty of choice, and a warm welcome.

Getting around

You will find everything you need in the village but you will need a car if you want to explore the area.

Distance Lisbon - Vila do Bispo = 320 km

Distance Faro - VIla do Bispo = 85 km

Guestbook comments from the owner

An's place was a perfect base for exploring the west of the Algarve. An was totally amazing, all the communication was fantastic and so much useful information and suggestions for things to do and place to see and eat was provided. An's handmade brochure on best beaches, places to see, restaurants and nights out was great! The apartment was lovely, clean and lots of little treats left made it feel very special. One of the best holiday homes we've ever stayed in, thanks so much An!

Wonderful flat, fantastic area, great host!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for having us in your wonderful flat in VIla do Bispo. Its perfectly located to explore all the beaches and we really felt at home from day 1.

Thank you for all the valuable tips you gave us and for checking up on us. We really felt looked after and cared for.

For visitors: we really enjoyed stand up paddle boarding at Belish beach and our surf lessons in Amando where great.

For a relaxing night out, head to Luis bar, Agua Salgada for a fresh juice or a cocktail and then head to Mums, our all time favourite restaurant in town.

Thank you for everything. It has been a wonderful holiday for us. C and N

Fantastic apartment in a wonderful area

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un moment magique dans cette région superbe où la pratique du surf est presque incontournable !!! L'appartement est très bien conçu et très fonctionnel et lumineux. Nous avons profité allègrement du barbecue dans la cour et des fils extérieurs pur étendre nos draps de plage. An est très gentille et nous a donné de bonnes indications à notre arrivée ce qui nous a permis de découvrir notre petit paradis.

Nous sommes certainement bénis avec l'environnement incroyable, la météo, les plages, les vagues. Nous espérons vous accueillir bientôt de retour

Very Nice!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at An´s apartment was very nice! The whole flat was spacious and cozy furnished. Exactly like on the pictures. The flat is located in Vila do Bispo, a good initial position for visiting a lot different beaches. We stayed for 8 nights and went to a new beach every day. (a car is recommended) Furthermore An was a very kind and helpful host with a lot of tips and informations about bars, restaurants and sights. We would suggest Casa da Praia to everyone who wants to go to the Algarve.

Recomended place.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a lovely stay at Casa da Praia. We had a wonderful week! We really appreciated all of the information you left behind, as well as all of the details you focused on to make the house very comfortable. The house was in a spotless clean condition when we arrived. We specially loved the basket of oranges from Silves. It's a wonderful place to disconnect and to access so many enchanting towns and stunning beaches.

A REAL HOME FROM HOME IN THE PERFECT SETTING.

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Vila do Bispo and our first to Casa da Praia. The house has everything you need to ensure a more than comfortable stay. Cool fresh bedrooms and a well equipped kitchen. My parents travelled with us this year and they loved both the apartment and the village. We used the market most days and on the days we chose to eat out there was so much to choose from. We also received great support and advice for things we wanted to from the owner. A great family holiday.....see you next year!
